INTER-VIEWS – The Photovoice Annual Show

What constitutes a nation’s culture, history and heritage? In documenting its people, communities and their way of life, what is worth collecting and remembering? Of history – whose records do we read and which versions do we live by? Whose voices count in a land of stories?

Photovoice is the concept of visual storytelling, told and created from the point of view of the personal subject. It offers an intimate look into the lives of people who may not have much visibility in society. domain list Photovoice is about giving a voice to people who need to be seen, heard and understood for who they are, freed from the preconceptions and misunderstandings of wider society. It is about creating room for alternative stories and inviting others to listen.

As we chart our nation’s evolving narrative, this exhibition presents little stories that seek to widen our cultural space, while unravelling essential threads of our collective imagination, memory and being.

The Photovoice annual collection is a collection of 15 visual stories from Photovoice SG’s projects from March 2012 to March 2013.
